Sorry - I got a note back from Joe Geiger. His deputy (who was running the markers program the past year) just left and he's trying to do double duty. I emailed him a list of about 20 questions and he said it might take time to get answers.

I happened to see these 2 markers on my way home from Sgt Kiger's burial in Mannington last week. Totally by chance.

In the meantime, here is what I have TENTATIVELY - meaning, the markers were ordered and presumed to be delivered to the local DOH sign shops, but we don't know if they are in place. I stopped by our local shop, and the sign man (Rick Reed) told me he had put up a few, but he still had some in the wrappers waiting to be installed. So.... with that in mind, here is a list of new or refurbished markers that MAY or MAY NOT be in place yet. The new markers did not have an exact location listed (which are on the list of questions for Joe).

Capon Lake Whipple Truss Bridge (Hampshire Co) Location ?
Stalnaker Cabin Site and Cemetery (Randolph Co) Location ?
Oakwood Mine Complex (Fayette Co) Location ?
Carswell Mining Complex (McDowell Co) Location ?
Albright/Albright Family (Preston Co) Location?
Lavina Norman (Cabell Co) Location?
Jimtown/Phillips Cemetery (Randolph Co) - Location??

Camp Carlile (Ohio CO) Zane St / N. Wabash St - Wheeling Island, Wheeling
Old Iron Furnace (Preston Co) Rt 26 NW of Albright
Greenbrier CO / Virginia - Rt 60 (?)
Asa Gray / Buffalo Trail (Randolph Co) - Rt 250 near Pocahontas Co line
Fort Ogden (Grant Co) Rt 50 - E of Gormania - 1 mile west of CR 50-2
Fairfax Line (Grant Co) Rt 220 - 1 mile south of Petersburg
Flemington (Taylor Co) - Rt 76
Dunkard Bottom (Preston Co) - Rt 7 - 2 mi East of Rt 26
Dunmore's Camp (Wood Co) - Rt 2 - Waverly
Huntington (Cabell Co) - Rt 60 (5th Ave) between 7th and 8th Street
Lover's Leap (Morgan Co) - Rt 522 - north of Berkeley Springs (better get this one before someone steals it again!)
Mason-Dixon Line (Preston Co) - Rt 26 NE of Bruceton Mills at the PA state line.

The rest are refurbished ones - I need to go through the postings and see if the photos we have are the old ones or if we have the refurbished ones already. This will hopefully give you something to keep you busy tomorrow.
